FIRST PRIZE – TOTALLY FREE!
SECOND PRIZE – ONE-THIRD PRICE
THIRD PRIZE – HALF PRICE
PRIZES 4-10 – 20 PER CENT OFF
ALL OTHER VALID ENTRIES – 10 PER CENT OFF!

THAT'S RIGHT, you get a discount simply by entering the contest... But your great idea could easily win one of the top 10 prizes!

A £950 PHOTO SHOOT COULD BE YOURS… IF YOUR IDEA IS GOOD ENOUGH!

Just use use the entry form below to submit your idea, and you could win the chance to book a £950 professional couple-portrait photo shoot with Impressions Photography, on the terms set out in the prize table.

Your winning idea might be, for example:

  • A proposal surprise – in an attractive public place, where an inconspicuous photographer won’t be noticed!

  • A dramatic location or setting – romance on top of a mountain, or in an open-top vintage sports car, perhaps?

  • A costume drama – playing characters from a favourite movie, or just a period in history that appeals to you.

  • …Or something else entirely! It’s up to you!

IT’S OK TO REFER TO EXAMPLES that inspire you, and use them as illustrations to explain your concept. In the form below, you can include links to images you’ve found online online, or a Dropbox folder or Pinterest board, etc.

TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR WINNING ENTRIES

  • DON’T MISS THE DEADLINE! The deadline for this Concept Contest is midnight on Sunday, May 30, 2019. Don’t miss it!

  • THIS ISN’T JUST ABOUT ENGAGEMENT! You could have a major anniversary as your theme – or just celebrate being together.

  • KEEP IT BRIEF! A few short sentences should be enough to get the gist of your idea across.

  • KEEP IT DECENT! I need to be able to post winning photos online, so they have to meet social media “community standards”, I’m afraid!

  • BE REALISTIC about budget. A photo shoot outside the Sydney Opera House might be a great idea… But likely to cost more than the entire first prize budget, for travel alone! You can still submit an extravagant idea if you wish – but keep in mind that to claim your prize, you’ll need to be able to cover any excess cost.

  • BE SPECIFIC. “A cinematic style photo” is rather vague… “In the style of The Matrix trilogy” (for example) gives a much clearer idea of the look you have in mind!

  • BORROW & TWIST! A new and personal twist on an existing idea can be highly creative. Take an inspiring idea as a starting point and give it your own special twist.

  • MAKE IT PERSONAL. The more your idea tells a unique and special story about it’s subject, the more impact your photos are likely to have!

  • READ THE RULES! Before you submit your entry, be sure to scroll down this page and read the Competition Rules. By entering, you confirm that you accept them.
